Writing as a 71-year-old, I think it’s great to see nudes of older people, and not just “hot babes, but tasteful.” Yes, my skin used to be tighter, but look at all the extra texture!
Really Old Nudes – Centenarians
The Centenarians series by the American photographer Anastasia Pottinger is a look at the human body after more than 100 years of usage. They’re close up details of aging bodies in black and white, with the subjects remaining anonymous. They could be your grandmother, your grandfather, or you yourself after a few more trips around the sun.
Here’s a few old nude photographs from the ongoing Centenarians series..
